"Works perfectly as long as you DON'T USE IT."1.5 starson by boutros2
Pros: track pad is superior to track ball. camera is decent enough for casual use. quite the conversation piece if you go back in time and show it to medieval peasants.
Cons: No battery will last in this thing unless the phone is completely idle. I have gone through three perfectly good batteries - the internal circuitry is garbage. The app world software itself is bloatware - updating this takes over 30 minutes. unable to
Summary: I don't know why this is called a good "beginner" PDA. I thought that meant it would have fewer features, cheaper camera, etc. Turns out that what it in fact means, is that you shouldn't expect the piece of trash to work if you actually want to USE it for anything.
Make a one-hour phone call? Wears down the battery.
Pairing to a bluetooth headset? Wears down the battery.
Taking a couple of photos? Wears down the battery.
Can't get a signal? Wears down the battery looking for one.
Using the browser to find an address? Wears down the battery.
Using the GPS feature (which admittedly is limited but useful and pretty cool)? Wears down the battery.
The only way to use this device and its features effectively is to KEEP IT PLUGGED IN CONSTANTLY.
